15 Minute Shrimp Linguine With Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce is a light pasta dish mixing shrimp, fresh parsley and a lemon garlic butter sauce. This dish is a great for a romantic date night, a dinner party or a light weeknight meal. Pair with a good bottle of white wine, crusty bread and a salad.
Valentine’s Day is coming up soon and if you are like me and kind of last minute, today’s 15 Minute Shrimp Linguine With Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce might be your answer for date night. Now, this dish does have garlic in it so I will warn you ahead of time to keep the mints nearby. But it is totally worth it…I promise.
One thing I love about this dish is how easy it is to make. You can’t beat a 15 minute meal that is still elegant and delicious. The flavors of shrimp with the lemon garlic butter sauce are heavenly. It pairs really nicely with a light Massaged Kale Salad, some of these Simple Garlic Parmesan Green Beans and a nice glass of white wine.
I don’t know about you but I have never been huge on the whole Valentine’s Day craze. I like to do date nights throughout the year and don’t like to single out one day to show my love and affection. But with that being said I really do like an excuse to cook a good meal, and this would be a fun one to cook together.
New Years Eve for example was our excuse to open a good bottle of wine and cook lobster tails. I don’t normally splurge on something like that but it seems appropriate for a holiday celebration.
This 15 Minute Shrimp Linguine with Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce reminds me of vacationing near the ocean. For me winter is all about tricking myself into feeling warmer by eating dishes that involve seafood.
It’s the little things, right? With three little ones to take care of we will be hanging out at home this Valentine’s Day and this dish is the perfect thing for us to whip up!
And just to make sure you didn’t get the wrong idea this dish isn’t only for those extra special days, it makes a nice light dinner any time that is ready in under 15 minutes. This screams summer if you ask me. I also sometimes like to just use the sauce with the shrimp and skip the pasta for a nice, light appetizer. Shrimp is so versatile and often a favorite with guests.
Are you serving this to kids? Try a fun pasts shape to get them excited.
